The Simpsons Finally Makes Its Way to China


It’s well known that Western film and TV properties usually have a hard time gaining a foothold in China, and that producers and studios usually have to make concessions and edit/add scenes just to get their movies shown. Fox Television and Matt Groening’s iconic animated TV series The Simpsons will be joining the list of popular American properties that will be shown in China. The landmark deal came via the online video service Sohu Video, which has signed a multi year deal to bring a Mandarin-subtitled version of The Simpsons to viewers across China.

“The Simpsons is a unique television property, which has the ability to transcend worldwide cultural boundaries and has the capability to easily translate into any language,” said Mark Kaner, President of Twentieth Century Fox Television Distribution. He added, “We are excited to expand our existing and long standing partnership with Sohu to allow audiences in China to watch one of the greatest TV shows ever made.”

The Simpsons executive producer Al Jean jokingly remarked that they can finally reveal that Springfield is actually located in Guangdong province.
